About this title


Founded in 1641, Stamford is one of the oldest towns in New England. Although once a stopping place on the stagecoach route between New York and Boston, Stamford remained largely agrarian until the coming of the railroad in 1848. The resulting influx of immigrants and industrial expansion that followed transformed Stamford from a rural community into a bustling city. The images in this book date from the Civil War through the end of World War I, from the earliest available photographs to the established use of the automobile. It is a time that saw the gristmills become factories and old frame trading posts be replaced by imposing brick structures. During these years the people of Stamford supported the Union Cause and voted for Grover Cleveland; they built new homes, churches, schools, and parks; they established a hospital and a library; they joined the YMCA, went yachting, and always turned out for a parade.

About the Author:

Bonnie K. Bull, Photo Archivist for the Stamford Historical Society, has drawn exclusively on the society's Photographic Collection to create this delightful pictorial journey through Stamford's early past. Bonnie first became interested in Stamford history when she began collecting turn-of-the-century Stamford postcards. It was through her early research on these cards that she became affiliated with the Stamford Historical Society.
